Locus Iste

In honor of todays Feast of the Dedication of St. John Lateran I provide a link to the Sacred Music Colloquium XX attendees singing "Locus Iste" by Bruckner. Locus Iste is the gradual text for today.

Locus iste a Deo factus est,
inaestimabile sacramentum;
irreprehensibilis est.

This place was made by God,
a priceless sacrament;
beyond reproach.

"The whole truth is generally the ally of virtue; a half-truth is always the ally of some vice." - G.K. Chesterton
